West Africa: Timbuktu to Darfur with Nicholas Kristof and Win-a Trip student

Erin Luhmann, who traveled with NY Times Op-Ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristof, reports on conditions in West Africa including malnutrition in Mali,  club foot in Niger, and the refugee crisis in Darfur. Luhmann won Kirstof's annual "win a trip" competition."  Nothing, she says at the beginning of this report, prepared her for what she saw in West Africa.

You can also read Kristof's column about Darfur here, where he reports that mass atrocities have resumed in Darfur and that "it’s no longer news that the Sudanese government is slaughtering its people."
